FIFA partners with QatarEnergy for World Cup 2022

With this deal, all global partnership positions for the FIFA World Cup 2022 have now been assigned.

The highest governing body of football, FIFA has announced QatarEnergy as the new partner for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022. QatarEnergy is the second Qatar-based company to become a partner of FIFA, and it is one of the world’s largest suppliers of liquefied natural gas (LNG). 

FIFA President, Gianni Infantino, said, “QatarEnergy is joining FIFA in this important FIFA World Cup year, and we are delighted to welcome them, as they share our excitement and enthusiasm for this first FIFA World Cup organised in the Arab world. This year’s tournament will expand football’s reach and shine a light on the region, bringing different cultures from across the globe together in Qatar to enjoy the best football in the world in stunning state-of-the-art venues.

Mr Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, the Minister of State for Energy Affairs, the President and CEO of QatarEnergy, commented, “QatarEnergy is pleased to partner with FIFA again, this time in support of the iconic FIFA World Cup, which will be held in Qatar and the Middle East for the first time. This partnership is a reflection of our continued support of various sports activities, and football in particular as the central attraction of the sporting world. We look forward to a very successful competition and to being part of the effort to welcome the world to Qatar.”  

QatarEnergy is an integrated energy company instrumental in the development of cleaner energy resources as part of Qatar’s and the world’s energy transition, and it is the world leader in LNG production.

With this deal, all global partnership positions for the FIFA World Cup 2022 have now been assigned. Meanwhile, only one regional supporter package is still available in the Middle East and Africa market, providing a final chance for a company based in Qatar or the wider Gulf district to be allied with the FIFA World Cup 2022.

Recently, an Indian EdTech company, BYJU’s has also been named as the official sponsor of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022. 

The highly-anticipated event will be the 22nd edition of the competition, a quadrennial international men’s football championship represented by the national teams of FIFA member associations. It will commence on November 21 and will run until December 18, 2022.
